1st Direct Cars have been had the pleasure of serving the customers and staff of The Pheasant Inn for in excess of 12 years. Throughout this time we have seen a lot of changes. When we first started our relationship with them it was a well loved pub, with a restaurant. Since then The Pheasant has changed beyond recognition into the best of the best.
A few years ago a previous owner built an 11 room hotel extension, which was sympathetically added to the rear of the premises. From this point forward The Pheasant began it’s slow journey to towards the threiving establishment it now is.
In January 2016, Jack Greenall became The Pheasant’s new landlord, and set about launching a new chapter for this well-loved local landmark.
Jack’s family has a passion for brewing and managing pubs and hotels that dates back to the 1750’s. After training with the fastest-growing country pub group in the south of England, Jack was thrilled to launch his own innkeeping career with a top-to-bottom restoration that both honours The Pheasant’s heritage and ushers in a new generation of epicurean pleasures.
A sensitive refurbishment has brought the bar and restaurant a new, relaxed elegance with rich colours, comfortable furnishings and atmospheric lighting. And whether you pull up a vintage leather bar stool, hunker down in the cosy snug with its quirky print gallery and bespoke selection of local and general interest books or join friends at a table in the main dining space, it’s a great place to sample their broad and imaginative drinks range and regularly changing menu, which showcases the freshest and best local produce and unfussy, flavoursome cooking.
The Pheasant’s 11 guest rooms too have been transformed, with an eclectic but sleek mix of patterns, textures and tones that give each bedroom a completely unique, contemporary look featuring hand-picked artworks, fabrics and furniture and meticulous attention to detail.
As The Pheasant has grown Jack identified the need for an amazing private dining room. This room is stunning and luxurious, with seating for 20, it’s own servery and private toilet facilities.
The room was exclusively designed by the renowned designer Octavia Dickinson, and includes a large flat screen TV, full SKY channels including all the sports packages and a Sonos sound system.
With the help of The Pheasant’s team this room can be tailored into a unique and personal experience, which will be a treasured memory.
On a personal note, I used this room for a family celebration and I can not fault the service or the quality of the room.
